In the Czech Republic, the Russian center of cyber attacks has been neutralized – Local Media

According to the Czech local news magazine Respekt, Russian Intelligence Services used two computer companies in Prague for performing cyber attacks.

It is alleged that the Czech Security Forces disclosed the activities of the cyber attack center in early 2020.

According to a journalistic investigation, the two companies were formally engaged in the sale of computer hardware and software, but in reality their employees were also preparing hacker attacks using their computers.

Journalists found out that part of the equipment for companies in the Czech Republic was brought from Russia through third countries by cars of the Russian Embassy with diplomatic numbers. The computer companies got this technique also through the diplomatic mission.

The investigation said that the hacker group included both Czechs and Russians who received Czech citizenship. The group could cooperate with several similar Russian groups operating in other countries.

It is interesting to note that in September last year in the Czech Republic for hacking the system of issuing residence permits detained 8 Russians and Vietnamese. Russian hackers had hacked the servers of the Czech Foreign Ministry in the interests of the Vietnamese for a fee, who can legalize their countrymen’s stay in Europe.
